Sadly, two of our Oddball Blankets (and one of our shawls) have been eaten by the post office.
The first one was sent to the Netherlands, but never made it back. (She was the 2nd knitter, so the blanket had not really grown that much.)
The second one lost was our 4th blanket. This one had 5 knitted portions, so it wasn't big yet, but still some time had been invested in it.
Also, the Misty Blues Shawl disappeared:
So, I guess we should each mail our packages First Class or Priority Mail
, so we can add 65 cents for Delivery Confirmation
. That will help a bit with keeping tabs on the blankets. Plus, we will be able to search for them in the postal system that way.
If you use a Priority Mail
Flat Rate Box, the rates are not that bad.
You can also write "HANDLE WITH CARE" on the package, if you want.
